AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR SAGGING SKIN
WITH CRISTAL SKIN®.
CRISTAL Skin is a non-surgical technique that uses radio frequency technology. Radio-multifrequency, indicated for the treatment of sagging skin.
Radio-multifrequency is based on the emission of high frequency electromagnetic waves which penetrate the skin and heat it. They act at different levels of depth to target respectively the dermis (skin) and the hypodermis (fat).
As a result, on the one hand, existing collagen and elastin fibres are tightened and new ones are produced. This remodelling promotes the regeneration of the skin, which appears more toned and firmer.
On the other hand, radiofrequency will help to destroy certain fat cells that are resistant to othe treatments.
Skin laxity is linked to two main factors:
Skin ageing accentuates the sagging of the skin. As we age,
elastin and collagen fibres become rarer, their natural production slows down.
The skin becomes thinner and more distended, losing volume,
elasticity and tone. Wrinkles appear.
The CRISTAL Skin treatment helps to enhance the contours and redefine the oval of the face.
The heat generates a tensor effect and stimulates the production of
and collagen, giving the skin a visibly younger appearance.
The skin is tightened and firmed, wrinkles are less visible.
Significant weight variations (following a diet, pregnancy, weight gain)
can be at the origin of the phenomenon of skin laxity.
Indeed, these weight variations cause repeated distension of the skin,
leading to skin laxity. The CRISTAL Skin treatment helps to smooth out the irregular appearance
of the skin in areas such as stomach, arms and thighs.
It also acts on painful fibrous cellulite, which cannot be treated with mechanical massages.
What happens during a CRISTAL Skin® session?
Your doctor defines the treatment parameters to achieve your goals.
Then he applies Cristal SKIN contact gel before starting the treatment. He then performs linear and circular movement
s on the targeted area with the corresponding applicator.
The session will last on average of 20 minutes.
After the session, your doctor may apply a skin care cream to the skin to reduce post-treatment redness.
Can I resume normal activity after a session?
There is no downtime required with CRISTAL Skin® treatment as it is a non-invasive method.
You can therefore resume to your daily activities as soon as the session is over.
When will I see results?
The results are visible, on average, from the third session onwards.
Depending on the indication: a smoother appearance, improved elasticity and
tone of the skin, a firmer oval, a “healthy glow” effect.
To obtain satisfactory results, it is recommended to carry out on average
5 to 6 sessions spaced about 3 weeks apart (depending on age and skin condition).
Maintenance sessions every 4 to 12 months will be necessary to maintain the results over time.
Is CRISTAL Skin® safe and does it have any side effects?
The CRISTAL Skin® treatment is non-invasive and perfectly safe, especially on the fragile areas of the face.
This technique generates a deep heating of the subcutaneous tissues but
without overheating the epidermis, so there is no risk of burning or pain.
After your session, it is possible to see some redness and temporary swelling
that last a few hours, exceptionally 24 to 48 hours.
Are the results permanent?
Following a CRISTAL Skin® treatment, the skin is visibly firmer and tighter.
By taking care of yourself through a balanced diet and regular physical activity the results will
last but maintenance sessions will be necessary.
